Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Places of Worship"

Description
: Buildings where people go to worship, pray, confess, meditate, marry, bury, see visions or whatever else. Examples include: Churches, mosques, shrines, ashrams, sweat lodges. Difficulty: It's gotta be man-made and have a semblance of walls and roof. Note: Sports venues do not count.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.



Please note:

The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.


Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.


- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Stats can be found here.

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

This was about the only thing left standing in the Kürfustendamm area of Berlin at the end of World War II. It is preserved as a memorial. The modern looking addition at the right is a bell tower.

While walking the streets of Budai, Taiwan, I came across this random temple that had extraordinary detail in its roof decorations. Had to take a shot.

Fleetwood Star Trails

An old, semi-abandoned church in Brandy Station, VA.

Single exposure, 60 minutes shortly before dawn. I tightened my aperture just a tad too much for this one and ended up drowning out alot of the star trails. Next time....

Cathedral of San Pietro, Bologna, Italy
Kind of plain on the outside, beautiful on the inside.


Pro-tips for Italy travel:
A) Walk everywhere.
B) Whenever you see a church, walk in. The art and beauty will astound even the most dyed-in-the-wool atheist.
